Kimbajed: ..great question. I pulled out my Lake Placid tape and listened to the entire show, including Weir's tunes, on its anniversay (1983-10-17). I must admit that the song "My Brother Esau" caught my attention -- I think I even went searching for the lyrics. (Haven't listened to again but it does qualify as a turnaround). -- AshesRising

Picasso Moon is just step above Easy Answers and both are far below Victim or the Crime by plenty. The 12/31/84 Shakedown Street is also a pretty good version that made it to the So Many Roads Box Set...

Row Jimmy. I went from thinking it was a big yawn to it being in my top five.

Great moment? I saw the boys play Row Jimmy in Pittsburgh summer of 1990 and was up front (at a stadium gig! one of the few times I bothered but GDTS gave me the gold that summer) and for some reason Jerry zeroed in on me for the second verse and chorus and caught me mouthing every word with him. At the end of the chorus he laughed and shook his head and turned his attention elsewhere for the rest of the song. I'll never forget it.
